A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
Let silence be the art you practice.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Play it fuckin' loud!
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
I love rock-n-roll. I think it's an exciting art form. It's revolutionary. Still revolutionary and it changed people. It changed their hearts. But yeah, even rock-n-roll has a lot of rubbish, really bad music.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
I think another thing is that we don't really want exclusivity. We accept that it is in the artist's interest to be on sale in every place where they sell music.
One thing that really appeals to me is this idea of music being a living thing that has an evolution that, in a way, enables the artist to sell a process rather than a piece of product.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
People ask me how I make music. I tell them I just step into it. It's like stepping into a river and joining the flow. Every moment in the river has its song.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
